Science Fair Information

A school Science Fair is a big undertaking which can induce a sense of "fear and trembling" in students, parents, teachers, librarians and school staff. For a light hearted discussion of this subject, see THE SCIENCE FAIR PROJECT by Dave Barry

Actually, a Science Fair can be organized as a sequence of steps, most of which are quite easy to carry out. To insure a successful Science Fair, you should begin to organize several months in advance and follow a well designed plan. The following files provide a series of "time line" plans, sample letters, forms and references to provide guidance for organizing and running a school Science Fair. Readers are, however, encouraged to use their local libraries, consultants, resources and administrators as their primary source of information for the operation of their particular school or district Science Fair.
